Actually, I've coached boys and girls at the middle school and high school level in football, basketball and track. I've been on both sides of this issue though never to this extreme. I can remember a middle school game where we were getting blown out by 50 or so. The last thing on my mind was why they were running the score up or the opposing coach should take it easy on us. I was thinking about what we could do to get better. What lesson would I teach my kids if I whined about the other coach or just flat out gave up? Instead I kept coaching them and encouraged them to keep fighting. We still lost but we didn't give up. That's the lesson our young people need. You're not always going to win at everything you do and sometimes things are going to be tough. But never give up and always try to achieve the victory.

I applaud you sir. I guarantee you are making a positive impact on the young people you are around. I would not be the person I am today without some of the coaches like you that taught me how to win in life. Keep up the good fight!

They suspended the wrong coach. A beat down like that only happens when one team knows nothing about the game. I would venture to say that the losing team has not been taught the basic fundamentals of basketball. The losing coach is the one who is not teaching his players to play the game the right way. I'm not sure I or anyone else here can make a judgment of whether the winning coach tried to run the score up or not. We weren't there and we don't know all the circumstances. But the objective of sports at any level is to win. Otherwise, we would not keep score.

I have to say Oregon's Defense/OSU's Offense is the key to the game.  The Buckeyes will need to sustain drives and keep their Defense off the field as much as possible.  If Oregon's D can force a lot of 3 and outs, I worry that the Buckeye D will wear down.  The less Mariotta is on the field, the better I like our chances.

I had the opportunity to sit next to him at the spring game before he came to tOSU. You and your family should be proud. He is a very polite, kind young man. He seemed wise beyond his years. My compliments to your sister for raising a well adjusted man.

It was a conspiracy set up by Duracell and Energizer. They thank you for your patronage.

Exactly what I was just about to say.  3 championships in the last 6 years is not what I consider underachieving.  Like him or not, Saban has done a outstanding job of recruiting and then getting the results on the field.
